The South Asian Council for Social Services, a community-based nonprofit assisting the South Asian community, has received a $700,000 grant from the OneCity Health Innovation Fund to implement its project, Culturally Responsive Collaborative of Queens (CRCQ).
OneCity Health selected eight community partners to receive funding from its $5 million Innovation Fund to implement programs that will reduce avoidable hospitalizations, improve community health outcomes, and address food security, health literacy and other factors that impact people’s health.
“We are thrilled with this award that will ensure the health and well-being of our communities. We believe that this encouragement from OneCity Health will serve as a strong step towards the realization of the DSRIP [Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment] mission,” said executive director Sudha Acharya, in a statement after receiving the grant June 12.
